Our greatest goal is to give you the healthy, straight, beautiful smile you’ve always wanted. We understand that choosing to receive orthodontic care is a big decision, and we respect your reasons for wanting to improve the way you look and feel.
Our practice will work with you every step of the way to make sure your orthodontic care is as rewarding as possible. Our practice utilizes the latest technology, offering a variety of safe and gentle treatment options to give you the customized, individual care you deserve.
Every smile starts with an initial consultation!
Your initial consultation will give you the opportunity to meet our team, learn more about orthodontics, receive an oral exam, and find out which treatment options will best meet your needs. During your initial consultation, we will:
- Review your dental and medical history forms
- Provide an oral exam to determine whether treatment is necessary
Our team will be glad to answer any questions you may have, and we will provide all of the information you need to determine which treatment is right for you. Please contact our practice to schedule your initial consultation.
What happens after the initial consultation?
If Dr. Kosiorek feels treatment is necessary, you will be scheduled for a “diagnostic records appointment.” At that time, a comprehensive assessment will be performed to determine the nature and scope of the problem. It will include X-rays, photos, dental molds as necessary, and reexamination of the dentition. A diagnosis and treatment plan will be presented, and all financial information, insurance options, and payment plans will be discussed.
Now you’re one step closer to achieving the smile you’ve always wanted! After your consultation, we will schedule whatever appointments are necessary to begin your treatment. Hurrah!
If the doctor feels treatment is unnecessary at this time, but may be necessary in the future, you will be asked to return at a later date for reevaluation at no charge.
Visiting the orthodontist about every four to eight weeks is an important part of your orthodontic treatment. Our practice will work with you to make sure your appointments are as convenient as possible. When scheduling appointments, please let us know what days and times work best for you.
We understand that “life happens”! If you’re running late or need to reschedule, please let us know and we will do everything we can to accommodate you. When you’re ready to schedule your first appointment, contact our practice and our friendly scheduling coordinator will assist you. We’re looking forward to working with you.
Visiting the dentist during orthodontic treatment
It is very important that you continue to visit your family dentist once every six months for teeth cleanings and routine dental checkups, even during your orthodontic treatment. If extra dental care is needed, we will be happy to coordinate with your family dentist to make sure you receive the best possible care.
